    Abstract Teachers and caregivers are not yet equipped to teach and discuss climate change with children in schools. Community-led approaches could act as cooperative platforms where multiple stakeholders can discuss and establish trust. Global commitments, such as the SDGs and NDCs need to be accelerated to effectively address climate risks on mental health and to increase awareness of the issue. There is insufficient investment in mental health support systems at national-level climate action planning in most countries. Innovative solutions, such as digital mental healthcare, sustainable urban design, and rebonding with nature can help build climate resilience and protect mental health.
